Something tells me that that degree in German is not going to go very far in a collapsed society. In fact, you are probably already out of a worthwhile job and you will be out of a skill as well. Skills are what will have value in the fallen world. The things you can produce to help others survive will carry all the weight. Do you have a skill like that in your toolbox? Its something to consider.
One of the most powerful skills will be woodworking. The ability for a person and their tools to create exactly what people want using only wood, will make you an invaluable person. This skill will keep you fed and maybe even keep you protected. In a survival situation, there is no better outlook than that. The time to learn these skills is running out.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
